Steelemas, part uno

Okay, I picked up my 2021 Steele this weekend and it’s the usual pleasure for me.  I’ll give you a few tidbits here and there over the next few days, but you should go out and grab it for yourself.

What I want to share in this post is probably my favorite thing in the magazine, at least so far.

One of the metrics he’s come up with he calls “Draft Day Party Hangover”.  Quite simply, he assigns a value to every player that goes in the NFL draft (7 points in the first round, 6 points in the second, etc.) adds them up and ranks college programs in decreasing order of points.  So you could say, and you would for sure if you’re a Florida Gator, that it’s a measure of player development in college.

You probably can guess where this is going.

It’s a good thing Mullen is such a great in game coach, I guess.

    But all Mullens’s players were lower ranked coming out of high school, so he did develop them better 🙄. At least that’s what they will say. Douchebags.

    Keep in mind that Bama’s LT, starting RB, 2 WR’S could have all gone the previous year. and came back as Seniors. That is what threw that # as high as it is. Georgia should receive a pretty significant bounce in next year’s draft for the same reason.

    This is the year we find out about Mullen. If he can make that UF team something special, then he has my respect. But if they end the season with 7 or 8 wins – then I think “Mullen the coaching genius” will be replaced with “Mullen, the Gus Malhzahn of Florida football history. 🙂

    I’m more concerned about the massive gap between Bama and Georgia despite having similar recruiting rankings. Kirby can recruit with Saban but so far, he hasn’t developed players like Saban has. That has to change if we’re going to get over the hump.
